DIY Bunting Flags

I did it - I got my hit of colour that I was craving and did it via Bunting Flags. And I did it with a very simple DIY method. :)

(Above) I adore this little nook now.

The little flags added the hit of whimsy and colour that I so desperately wanted....and it didn't cost me a dime. Knowing there was no investment in my DIY route other than my time, I decided to give it a whirl. And I'm actually really delighted with how it turned out.

I simply designed some triangles on the computer in the colours I wanted - printed them, cut them and attached them to a string. Ta-da. The Style at Home DIY route was the next option if this method didn't work, but I was really trying to avoid hunting around Toronto for the perfect paper/fabrics colours.

DIY INSTRUCTIONS & DOWNLOAD TEMPLATE
It's an easy DIY. You can easily do this yourself by creating triangles on your computer in the colour scheme & size that you'd like for your own room. However, if you like ours, you are welcome to download the template (here) that I used for our nursery. Simply print, cut, and hang!

Step 1: I designed them on my computer all to fit on one sheet in the colours I thought would look nice together. I was going for a fun look, not gender specific.

Step 2: I printed the the page on an ink jet printer. I used heavier stock paper so that there was more weight to it and it hung nicely. Avoid your standard letter paper as it will be too thin.

Step 3:
Cut out Each Individual triangle

Step 4:
Tape or Hot Glue to the string

I'm really pleased with the look, and the room is slowly becoming complete. A few more projects that I can hopefully tackle before the little man arrives!

I do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your site. It looks like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my browser because I've had this happen before.

These procedures are usually essential in evaluating the patients' progress as they continue with the therapy. X-rays and an MRI are recommended to be sure there's nothing more
significant going on, like a herniated vertebral disc, or a fractured vertebra.
They also require cardiac and physical rehabilitation.
